    Beautiful. The colors almost made them look like segmented turnings.

    Way to go in bringing out the best in the wood John. Interesting design would have liked to see a coin in the pic to be able to get a better idea of scale.
    Will that red stay red ? I have no experience with that much red in the wood.
    cheers

    Very very nice John They almost look Chinese hanging like that and look a bit like candle flames if they were upside down.

    How and what are they connected to to be used as earrings ?

    The wife and daughter makes jewelry and she has some hooks that look like a messed up S. It's small on one end and you crimp it to the eye and the other end goes in the ear.

    Thanks guys, they're right at an inch long. I started with a 3/4 x 3/4 blank about 3.5, 4 inches long. I put that in a 4 jaw chuck. I got both out of one blank.
